Fire is hot you see, and there is a lot of fire in the poster, that’s all I meant. Anyways, here’s a new poster for director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen. The film also stars Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn.
Check out the impressive trailer we posted here, Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th. The synopsis reads:
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
So basically monster goes smash.

We showed you an unofficial trailer last month for David Gordon Green’s new drama, Joe about a relationship that forms between troubled Joe (Nicolas Cage) and an abused teen (Tye Sheridan). There is now an official trailer and release date for the great looking character dram that you can check out below along with the full synopsis. The movie looks great and Cage has never looked better, I can’t wait to check it out.
Joe opens in theaters and on VOD on April 11th, watch the trailer below:
This was meant to be I think; having just watched The Purge for the first time last week and hating it more than any movie I’ve seen in a very long time, I knew I would be the one to post this trailer for the money grabbing sequel.
James DeMonaco’s sequel The Purge: Anarchy keeps the same “plot” device as all crimes are legal on one day of the year, during the annual “Purge”, which preserves peace and prosperity for the other 364 days of the year. The first movie had so many plot holes, bad acting, bad writing, laughable exposition…sigh, I’m still tired. I will give the sequel this, it’s a pretty cool trailer. Then again, the whole idea here is awesome and was wasted once so what do I know anymore.
The Purge: Anarchy opens in theaters on June 20th, watch the trailer below:
Here is a full theatrical trailer director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners) upcoming thriller Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal. In the flick, Gyllenhaal discovers that he has a double, whom he eventually tracks down and engages, resulting in “a complex and dangerous struggle”. Well if they were trying to pull off a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller, they certainly did it by the looks of things.
The film also stars Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, and Isabella Rossellini. Enemy debuts exclusively on DirecTV February 6th followed by a theatrical release on March 14th.
ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.

Here is a new poster for director Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah, a new take on the “Great Flood” story. It looks and sounds epic, there will even be a big Super Bowl spot to take it home one last time to get butts in the seats. Russell Crowe is bearded and holding a small axe, it’ go time.
The film also stars Ray Winstone, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, and Anthony Hopkins. Noah opens in theaters and IMAX on March 28th.
Here is the first trailer for director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down. The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide and “Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least”. That sounds watchable already; I never read this one but I do like me some Hornby adaptations (About a Boy, An Education, High Fidelity) so it won’t take a lot to sell me on this.
The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill, and Tuppence Middleton. A Long Way Down opens in the U.K. on March 21st; check out the trailer after the synopsis below:
New Year’s Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. MARTIN (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he’s now desperate to jump. But he’s not alone. Single mother MAUREEN, (Collette), sassy teen JESS (Poots), and failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan. Instead of jumping, these four strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine’s Day at least. Both funny and poignant, A LONG WAY DOWN follows this group of unlikely friends as they try to pull back from the brink.
A lot has been said about 50 Shades of Grey, so I can’t offer up anything new. Its unfortunate popularity has done a lot of damage to literary standards, not to mention playing on the naivety of readers that this book is somehow relatable or empowering. (Note: it was Twilight fan fiction)
Anastasia Steele is superficial, blinded by Christian Grey’s money and looks. She’s supposed to be somewhat of an independent woman about to graduate college; instead she’s a shy, insecure, clumsy irritant that isn’t a realistic image of most women. I don’t know why readers chose to live vicariously with this book, boredom? Trying to grasp onto something of their own in this male dominated world of movies, games and Television? Some women have put down this book saying a real woman is in control of her own body and her own sexuality, Christian Grey being the misogynistic, self-loathing, abusive asshole that he is, isn’t something to look for.
So here we are, a movie is being made based on the book and the first poster for the film was unveiled. The film will be released on Valentine’s Day (obviously) in 2015, how romantic.
50 Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy). The movie will star Jamie Dornan (The Fall) as Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as Steele. Singer Rita Ora will play Christian Grey’s younger sister Mia.

Clip and Poster for David Wain’s Rom-Com Spoof THEY CAME TOGETHER Starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler
David Wain’s latest, They Came Together should have a full trailer soon, but for now enjoy a funny clip and even a funny poster. The rom-com spoof stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, and if you’re familiar with Wain’s work (The State, Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, Stella) you will notice he’s back to his old tricks of pointing out the absurd in hilarious fashion.
This time around it’s the romance genre and favorites of everyone (as it should be) Poehler and Rudd tackle chemistry like only they can. It didn’t work with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, as Admission was on my worst of 2013 selection, so let’s hope this one pulls off the laughs instead.
Here’s Wain’s on the film:
After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: ROMANCE — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.
Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak.
We first worked with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd on Wet Hot American Summer. They played summer camp counselors in that movie, so it was obviously hard for us to imagine them playing a shopkeeper and a corporate executive, respectively. But thanks to a team of acting coaches and an award™ winning VFX team, we pulled off the illusion.
Watch the clip and check out the funny poster that below that takes aim at Deadline.com:
Ivan Reitman’s upcoming sports drama Draft Day has a trailer below and it begs the question, how is this a movie? Well that’s just me I guess, I know there’s a lot of people who would watch this, a film takes place within the span of one day, the day of the NFL draft.
General Manager Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to save football in Cleveland when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL.
The last movie Reitman made that I liked was Kindergarten Cop when I was 5 years old, so…go bears! The film also stars Jennifer Garner, Frank Langella, Denis Leary, Timothy Simons, and Ellen Burstyn.
Draft Day opens April 11, 2014, watch the trailer below:
